What’s the silver bullet for me?!
I was reading the newspaper over coffee this morning and – there – on page A4 of the Ottawa Citizen – is MY ARTICLE! Well, okay, not my article exactly, but certainly very similar to one I wrote recently. Shannon Proudfoot (nope, don’t know her) wrote an article on the “silver bullet for raising happy and health kids”. If you haven’t already read it, take a look at my post from a couple of weeks ago called Your daily investment advice: Have dinner with your family at http://dustbunnychronicles.wordpress.com/2009/04/27/your-daily-investment-advicehave-dinner-with-your-family/. I pitched this to several magazines and got rejected. Yes I know, boo hoo. I’ve also been trying to find Canadian content for this article for months and I guess Shannon beat me to the dinner table. Dare to compare and let me know what you think! Maybe that’s the silver bullet though. I need to look for the Canuck Connection in everything and then pitch it. Yet the idea was inspired by American based research, so why not give the credit where it is due? Obviously it was necessary to ensure the same research held true on the Canadian population. Apparently, it does. Here’s Shannon’s article: http://www.montrealgazette.com/Health/Want+your+children+happy+healthy+Have+supper+with+them/1583604/story.html
